In the Trump Era even the meaning of words long since defined has been altered. A work of satire that acts as a call for governance based on objective truths and compassion, rather than religious or personal belief systems…
The world of words can often be confusing, especially in these fast-paced and ever evolving times. Meanings of words can change so fast that even the dictionaries can’t keep up. To address this clerical lapse, I have gathered and refined the definitions of fifteen of today’s most consequential terms, and while you will find that there are some conflicting definitions provided, the “Re:Definitions” that follow are consistent with the ways in which these words are used in the popular press and parlance.
Of course, these definitions may have evolved or may no longer be relevant by the time you read this. I encourage the reader to update and share these definitions as a community service. As always, your feedback is welcome and desired.
